Re: Dunn traded to DBacks
Okay, so after some research I think I understand the waivers rules a bit better. What I don't understand is this:
If the two PTBNL have to clear waivers before the deal is official, what is to stop other clubs from placing claims on them before the 48-hour wait period is over?
That is, say Micah Owings and Josh Whitesell are currently on waivers. And say the Astros make a waiver claim on both of them. Wouldn't that screw up the trade? Or would Walt just have to renegotiate for different players?
Sorry if I'm being dense here, but I'm just trying to figure out how this works.
